Food and nutrition plays an integral part in any wellness retreat, supporting your health transformation and giving your body the right fuel to function at its best. Discover how COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali specially tailors its cuisine to complement your wellness journey through deliciously organic culinary experiences.
COMO Shambhala cuisine
While the cuisine may be centered around health and wellness, dining at COMO Shambhala Estate is an experience in its own right, with a choice of atmospheric eateries and carefully curated menus. Guests can immerse themselves in an ornately designed former Javanese residence at Kudus House, or savour refreshing flavours with Glow restaurant’s contemporary all-day dining.
Serving breakfast and dinner, Kudus house celebrates the vibrant flavours and diverse influences of Indonesian cooking. Expect a tastebud explosion of spices and colours served up in a truly gourmet experience, surrounded by rich, dark wood interiors and ornate carvings to give you a real feel for the culture.
Meanwhile, Glow restaurant delivers fresh, contemporary all-day dining plus the signature COMO Shambhala cuisine, served up with breathtaking views of the Ayung valley. Colourful salads and zingy juices, all rich in enzymes, vitamins, and minerals are whipped up before your eyes in the open kitchen. These delicious dishes will power your body and support internal healing during your stay.
COMO Shambhala’s bespoke approach to health and wellness also extends to your food and drink. The estate’s dietician can create a personal eating plan for you in line with the COMO Shambhala values, as well as give guidance on how to maintain a balanced diet upon your return home. During your stay, your meals can be fully tailored to your goals, dietary requirements, and personal tastes, while the health coach liaises between you and the kitchen to ensure all individual needs are taken care of.
A balanced diet
Rather than rigid calorie counting or restrictive regimes, COMO Shambhala fosters a balanced approach to food and nutrition. Celebrating the joy of good food, the luxury hotel brings together the social aspect of dining with education on the benefits of good nutrition and how to bring it into daily life.
Fresh juices and extracts provide a daily dose of the vitamins and minerals your body needs for optimal functioning. Raw fruit and vegetables are integral to the cuisine as they are rich in living enzymes, while salt is kept to a minimum and sugar is replaced by unprocessed honey. All of these small changes to ingredients and food preparation ensure you get the maximum nutritional benefit from each meal, as well as delicious natural flavours.
Sustainability is a key feature of COMO Shambhala cuisine, minimising its environmental impact while also ensuring freshness and flavour in every ingredient. Everything is organic, locally sourced, and delivered from field to table in a short space of time. While vegan and vegetarian options are plentiful, there are also sustainably sourced meat and fish dishes to cater for all tastes.
